Positron polarisation workshop: POSIPOL 2014, 27 – 29 August
POSIPOL 2014 will be held at the new library of Ichinoseki-city, Iwate. As the ninth of POSIPOL workshop series, POSIPOL 2014 will discuss issues of polarised positron sources, high intensity positron sources, X-ray/Gamma-ray sources, and their applications. The positron sources for the linear colliders, ILC and CLIC, will be main subjects, but positron sources for other colliders such as B-factories will also be discussed. Visit the website to find out more.
Barry Barish | 10 November 2011An experiment at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy, designed to study the oscillation properties of neutrinos in travelling 732 kilometres from CERN to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy, reported evidence that these neutrinos arrive sooner than expected for particles travelling at the speed of light. Although the reported deviation is quite small, if correct, it would violate Einstein’s theory of relativity. The physics community now has to check whether the evidence is correct.
